A further three years with a one year extension option has been signed, making this the longest fixed term contract to be secured by Bibby Offshore.

He continued, “Controlling high quality assets has been a focus for our management team and the recent charter of the Mermaid Endurer is a key part of this strategy. Giving our clients access to first class vessels is essential to meet their needs and allows us to continue to deliver excellent DSV support in the North Sea.”
